‘None of my plants have died from overwatering since I started using this’: This soil meter is on sale for just $14

Chances are, you don’t put plant watering days on your calendar. (And if you do, we salute you.) That’s why many of us who love plants nevertheless lose track of when we last watered them — until suddenly we notice our perky greens have become droopy and withered. Then we know it’s time for the watering can, stat! But there’s an easier way to take care of your ferns, monstera and orchids — the Raintrip 4-in-1 Soil Meter. One device not only checks soil moisture but also pH, nutrients and light, turning your home into a greenhouse for only $14.


Just one meter tests moisture, pH, nutrients and light levels, making sure your garden is the talk of the town.

Plants are a cheery addition that liven up any space. But the cost of buying them can add up, whether it’s at a nursery or a supermarket. That’s why taking care of them ultimately saves you money. This soil meter will help you develop that green thumb for only $14 — that’s 55% off! Money doesn’t grow on trees, not even money trees.

There are times where we think we’re doing all we can for our plants, but they’re still withering. Sometimes it’s because they need more light, or it could be that the water isn’t getting down far enough into the soil. Or maybe we’re watering too much. The soil meter takes the guesswork out of plant care — its single-probe design is gentle on the root system and gets you results in seconds, with a readout that’s easy to understand. Just move the switch along the bottom to check whichever level you want.

This handy device works indoors and out with no batteries needed and is a cinch to store. Just make sure not to leave it in the soil for long stretches of time, and you’ll be in clover!

Nearly 2,000 five-star fans turn to the soil meter when they want their home to look lush as well as luxe and a garden that blooms well into fall.

“None of my plants have died from overwatering since I started using this product,” proclaimed one five-star reviewer. “I use it to test soil moisture only, and it’s reliable for that purpose. I like that you can bend the top part so it’s easy to read.”

This gardener agreed: “I got these to make sure that my soil for my berry bushes is at the right pH and my berry bushes are absolutely thriving and doing so well because I know right where the pH is. I can also monitor the nutrients in the soil and the moisture to make sure they are not over-hydrated.”

“It’s magic,” said this dazzled shopper. “This meter is perfect for my garden. It’s so easy to use, read and understand. I’m not sure what kind of voodoo they used to make this meter but NO batteries to replace and it works every time I stick it in the ground. A great purchase.”

There were users who held back stars because they felt the pH tester wasn’t quite right. “The most you’ll get from the meter is whether it’s acidic or alkaline,” said one.”Consider if you have plants that are sensitive to alkaline conditions and if alkaline water is a common problem in your area before considering buying this product.”

Echoed this shopper: “The pH we don’t think works but it does move the meter…Overall it helps, but you still have to monitor the plants to make sure the pH and nutrients allow them to grow well.”
